Should I Bring A Companion?
Even if you cannot travel with a companion, or prefer not to, you won’t be going it alone in-country. If you’re staying in a hospital, the quality of care and attention you’ll receive in the better centers is truly remarkable, with low nurse-to-patient ratios and a host of staffers, orderlies, physician’s assistants, and dieticians in and out of your room with great frequency. You’ll make fast friends during your stay.
If you’re not planning to travel with a companion, we strongly recommend you engage the services of a health travel agency that offers concierge services. A good agent is with you almost daily, particularly at the more stressful junctures, such as arrival in-country, medical consultations, and immediately before and after a surgical procedure.
